Default Women in Soldiers Uniforms

The image is from a postcard showing the bridal party from a mock wedding in 1919. Of the six women shown three are dressed as WWI Australian soldiers. The "soldier" on the far left has overseas chevrons on her right sleeve as well as wearing an A on the colour patch which denotes the uniform owner served as an ANZAC at Gallipoli. The "groom" is wearing a Sam Browne belt, is holding a swagger stick and has Sergeant stripes showing on her right arm. The other is wearing a Sam Brown. On all three the Australian Army Rising Sun badge can be seen. All uniforms are obviously too big.
